Jeremy O. Harris Tells Story of When Adele Attended His Play, Then Left Before It Started

Tony Award-nominated playwright Jeremy O. Harris is opening up about the time when Adele showed up to see a performance of his play Daddy… and then left before the show began.

The 32-year-old playwright and screenwriter took to Twitter this weekend to share the story while he was listening to Adele‘s new song “Easy On Me.”

“STORYTIME: I need y’all to know as we continue to stream #EasyOnMe that the week of Adele and JLaw’s infamous gay clurb Hen weekend I got a call from my agent to tell me that Adele needed 6 tickets THAT NIGHT to see a performance of my play Daddy: a melodrama,” Jeremy began his 14-tweet thread.

The 2019 off-Broadway production of Daddy featured Alan Cumming and a swimming pool was part of the stage design, which was part of the reason why Adele decided to leave.

Adele was turned off by the smell of the swimming pool and said she wasn’t feeling well. When she found out the play’s run time was two hours and 45 minutes, she decided to leave before the play even began.

One of Jeremy‘s other high-profile plays is coming back to Broadway this fall.
